"Pretty setting, great beach, good food...but...."
Harpuna Prince was a lovely hotel, with a great beach and pool. The staff was very friendly and responded quickly to requests. They offer a deal for parking and internet if you ask about it. The food was excellent but pricey($31.00 for a breakfast buffet). As much as we liked the setting, we had a glitch. Our room had a bad musty smell. After they changed the AC filter there was little difference. We were offered several room choices, but none were comparable to our room. The solution: a paltry reduction in our bill and a fruit basket.
We would recommend with reservations. Not much going on after 8 pm.
Loved the hotel and rooms but the herbalife convention completely detracted from the beginning portion of our stay. At 6 am we could hear them on their megaphones, we got pushed off sidewalks durinng marathons. One event was so bad the staff couldnt even keep the herbalifers under control on the slide and they ran the whole grounds. It really detracted from the stay
The staff were welcoming, professional and the most friendly and attentive we've experienced at a condo resort. They quickly responded to any requests, set up an air mattress in our room, and offered many nice touches including chocolates upon arrival and complimentary DVD rentals. The facilities were well attended to, and the care of staff was evident. Our condo was exceptionally clean. The condo was well-equipped, but a bit dated throughout. Perfectly comfortable.

Happy to be back to this hotel. Expedia's prices were better than the hotel was quoting. Our room was huge, fresh, great lanai, and marvelous view. Self parking was very close, a luxury in Hawaii. Pool one of the nicest ever.
The overall experience with this hotel is great. The only thing that needs improvement is the bathroom: there's a rusty spot inside the tub. It looked like someone tried to patch it up but it was not done correctly thus the repeated rust
The location of the hotel is great! 30 min to downtown kona and 20 min to airport. However if your main focus is the volcano national park you should probably stay at the Hilo side since this is about 2 hours away from the park
Would definitely come back again. Affordable, great staff
Luxury resorts, sprawling golf courses, and white sands line the Kohala Coast – Waikoloa. Hawaii’s sunniest coast is a must-go for beachgoers. It is also known as the cradle to King Kamehameha, Hawaii’s greatest king. His influence can be seen at the nearby Pu’ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, where visitors can see the temple of war he built before unifying the Hawaiian Islands.
